The Sloan-Kettering nomograms calculate the statistical probability of being cancer free after various treatment options. Calculations can be made prior to any treatment or after treatment. Lab results are required for input.

My doctor introduced me to these because he knew I was comfortable with statistical information.

Geezer99,

Yes, the SK nomograms are wonderful. The first few weeks after my surgery I looked at the nums several times a day just to reassure myself.

A couple more that may be of value:
    U Montreal at http://www.nomogram.org/
    American Cancer Society https://www.cancer.nexcura.com/Secure/InterfaceSecure.asp?CB=265 (requires the most work, biggest payoff, and access to tons of studies so you can see what the actual results of the studies were)
    And the mother lode of calculators at http://palpable-prostate.blogspot.com/2007/02/prosate-cancer-calculators.html
